Anyone know how to make Chrome automatically clear history and data whenever I close it? Since I've no choice but to use public computers that I can't Administer properly, I clear data every time leave the computer. Getting really tiresome.

A way to force Internet Explorer to do this would also be appreciated.

There used to be an option in the settings for that, but I suppose they removed it because it is kind of redundant.
Use an incognito (private) session to delete all your browsing data after you close the browser.

I think IE/Edge should provide private sessions as well.

Ah. I had seen private browsing mode. I thought it was for anonymity from the outside world.

Solved.

Chrome incognito mode seems to do what I need.

Internet Explorer has a delete history checkbox in the General tab of Internet Options.

Public Computer. Can't install a lot of things without Administrator password. Thanks though.
